Relationships, love, and career formed the crux of the third episode of Koffee With Karan 8. Sara Ali Khan and Ananya Panday were the guests on Karan Johar`s famous chat show. On the couch, the actresses spilled some tea about their dating lives, professional dreams and more. The episode kickstarted with Karan introducing Sara and Ananya with their film titles.
During the episode, when Ananya was asked about her relationship status, the actress dropped hints while subtly confirming that she`s dating `The Night Manager`, Aditya Roy Kapur. Continuing the trend of using movie titles in hints, Karan asked Ananya if she`s `Gumraah in love`. The actress responded by saying, “Aashiqui aise hi hoti hai (such is love).” Gumraah and Aashiqui 2 were headlined by Aditya. When Karan prodded her further, she said, “Some things are private and special and it should be kept that way but I really want to talk about my professional life because no one’s talking about it.” In spite of multiple attempts to make Ananya answer the question, she refused to give details. Instead, Ananya said that they were friends. Citing a dialogue from Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Karan said, “Pyaar dosti hai,” and she replied, “We’re best friends.”
Ananya, who celebrated her 25th birthday on October 30, jetted off to the Maldives for the special day. She was reportedly with Aditya. At a recent party, Ananya was seen leaning on his shoulder in a leaked inside video. It was enough for netizens to believe that they`re more than just friends.
During the promotional interviews for Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar, Ranbir Kapoor confirmed Aditya is no longer single but refused to name the person. During an interview, stand-up comic Aishwarya Mohanraj joked that she and Aditya were married in the past and added that their marriage lasted a mere 45 minutes. When she asked whether she`d be invited along with Aditya to Ranbir`s Diwali celebration, the actor shared, “He`s always there,” before sharply adding: “I don`t know if he wants to be around you. He was just being polite with you. I know he likes a girl starting with the letter A.” Fans of the rumored couple are only happy to assume that the “A” stands for Ananya Panday.
